My good friend Stuart Arrowsmith sent me a picture of the painting sitting on his wall.
As it turns out Puma are releasing a trainer that looks almost exactly like the design I did in this painting.
Now obviously I borrowed the colour way from the New Balance 575 White Pigeon by Staple design. So I am in no way claiming it is an original concept.
Some more in depth info and a brand new set of photos have arrive for the Staple x Puma Clyde “Pigeon” design. The Puma Clyde silhouette used for the project is of the “Made in Japan” persuasion, meaning that the sneaker will be clocking in at $200. Also inevitably driving up their desirability: there are only some 500 pairs worldwide. Check out the first in depth images of the Staple x Puma Clyde Suede “Pigeon” right after the jump and watch for these sneaks to release next Wednesday, April 17th at Reed Space in NYC. And if you can’t make it don’t fret too much, as a handful of other spots across the globe will get their pairs in on May 3rd.
Here is the sneaker from my painting:
